Simply ma.ja

Jewels by ma.ja are made with love and passion for basic structure, smartness and minimalist attitude. As the designer behind the brand, Markéta Janků says, “I always try to investigate the fundamental system of things“. Discover what this simplicity means – playful ideas, fascination with shapes, beauty of soul, melody of colours, lightness of being. Each jewel comes as a precisely hand-cut piece in a limited collection.

Extremely comfortable to wear, the jewels feature materials of typical lightness, such as anodized aluminium, surgical steel, glass, rubber and plastic, all combined in a clever game of materials forming an eternal and distinctive personal amulet. Anodizing, a special protective surface treatment will make sure your jewel keeps excellent colour stability.
